-old paul ciancia. police say he entered terminal 3 here at lax, opened fire, killing a tsa agent, injuring at least seven others before he himself was wounded in a gun battle. now, this all happened at a busy terminal 3 at 9:30 in the morning on friday, during the middle of the morning rush. police say ciancia walked into the terminal, pulled out an assault rifle, killed one, moved past security into the terminal where he was pursued by police and later taken into custody. the tsa agent is identified as gerardo hernandez. passengers during all of this hid inside restrooms, many poured out on to the tarmac. there was bloodshed and chaos that filled the terminal. investigators were able to shut down the terminal. 167,000 passengers here at lax, the third busiest in the country were affected by this. the terminal today remains shut down although the other terminals are operational. it was chaos and confusion all day yesterday, lester. but the suspect is in custody, lester. >> miguel almaguer at lax. thank you. >>> pete williams has more on the investigation into the suspect and also a possibl

anthony ciancia. c-i-a-n-c-i-a. they say he is 23 years old, born in february of 1990. a u.s. citizen who is living in the l.a. area. and as for the motive -- we're a long way from knowing that for certain. there is some indication, we're told, that he had strong anti-government views. that's based on some written material that we're told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by l.a. airport police. he is said to be in critical condition at the ucla medical. we believe that all of the people who were shot, all of the people he shot, were employees of the it tsa. one of whom was killed, three of whom were wounded, with varying degrees of severity of their injuries. but that he didn't shoot anyone else. one telling thing is what a witness said, who talked earlier today to msnbc, who said that the witness was approached by the gunman who said, do you work for the tsa. so it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the tsa. now, there had been some initial reporting from some news organizations that this suspect had a connecti

exactly why he shot three tsa agents, killing one of them. but investigators say 23-year-old paul ciancia left a one-page manifesto at the scene writing that he wanted to kill, quote, tsa agents and pigs. he referred to himself as a patriot and said he wanted to show how easy it is to get a gun into an airport terminal. he is facing murder charges. >>> we're also learning more about the survivors. one of the victims, brian ludmer was shot in the leg, dragged himself to a nearby closet and used his old boy scout training to create a tourniquet to slow the bleeding. >>> since the shooting, a lot of talk about whether airports are safe enough. are we in for another round of security changes? we'll hear from an insider.
